Applications for the 2014 Class of Global Fellows are open!
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Acumen Fund Global Fellows Program Class of 2013-2014! Applications will be accepted until 11:59 PM (Eastern Standard Time) on 16 November 2012. Late submissions will not be considered. Click here to apply now! To learn more about the program details or application requirements, please visit our website or watch the video below. The Global Fellows Program is a one-year fellowship program designed to train the next generation of leaders for the social impact sector. Fellows undergo two months of leadership training in New York and are then placed in one of Acumen Fund’s global investments for nine months. The Global Fellows Program is distinct from the East Africa and Pakistan Fellows Programs in that the Global Fellows Program is a full-time rather than part-time program, accepts candidates from any country instead of from just one country/region, and does not require Fellows to be driving a social change initiative prior to joining the program. Competitive applicants for the Global Fellows Program will meet the following criteria:
- Strong business experience – such as finance, operations, or consulting
- Demonstrated passion and commitment to creating positive social change
- Proven track record of leadership and management responsibilities
- Experience living and working in emerging markets
- Unrelenting perseverance, moral fiber, and critical thinking skills
- 3-5 years of work experience
Apply now or invite a friend to join the next class of Global Fellows, which would start the program in September 2013. Also, please share this announcement to your followers on Twitter or your friends on Facebook! We look forward to receiving your applications!
